15 day Cloud Forest, Volcano, Rainforest, Beach Tour with a mix of Eco-Basic and Eco-Plus lodges

“We visited such interesting places, our accommodations were first class and our guide, Kevin, was simply the BEST!

His knowledge and pride of his country, its birds and beasts and his constant advice and guidance were outstanding. His psychology with the kids was so perceptive, and his ability to accommodate the disparate ages {7 to 80} was masterful. We were amazed to learn that he’s only 23 years old. His family was also so good to us during our stay at their eco lodge.

The arrangement for us to visit a school [even though the kids were on vacation] and the lunch with a local family were invaluable experiences for my grandchildren. It’s amazing how the kids managed to play and get along despite the barest of language interaction. Kids are great!
